CHAFFEE, MO (KFVS) - A Chaffee, Missouri pit bull owner is gaining support worldwide to try and repeal the city's restrictions against certain dog breeds.

Brittney Brewer has collected more than 35,000 online signatures, as of Thursday afternoon, on the website thepetitionsite.com.

Brewer says she posted to the site after she went to the city to register the pit bull puppy she got for her 3-year-old daughter.

The city has certain restrictions in place for dogs deemed dangerous by law.

According to the ordinance, it requires owner muzzle dogs when out in public, not leave them tied up and unattended in their yard, and purchase liability insurance in case of injury.

Brewer says a dog's behavior should not come down to just its breed.

"It's all in how you raise them,” Brewer said. “I just knew I wanted to get a puppy to make sure they were raised right and we weren't inheriting someone's bad dog that they had mistreated."

She says she never expected so much support from the petition.

Brewer says she plans to take all the online signatures to the city.

City leaders say it would take a city council vote to change the current law.
